Join us for a one-of-a-kind excursion into Oregon’s interior where we pair the vintage textile experience of Portland Textile Month with an authentic heritage ranching operation, known for its fiber since the early 1870’s. This unique and exclusive opportunity for the fiber/design community will be a single day trip to the historic Imperial Stock Ranch.
Attendees will experience: • A scenic drive down the Columbia River Gorge in a private charter coach en route to the Deschutes River and the Imperial Stock Ranch where the views of Oregon’s high desert are breathtaking.• An authentic ranch experience, where we tour the heritage operation, walking through buildings from the late 1800’s, watch some amazing dogs at work, meet some sheep, and get a glimpse of the sustainable practices that have the Imperial Stock Ranch on the leading edge of today’s agricultural practices. • View the textile archives developed and created by Jeanne Carver spanning apparel, accessories and home fashions (including the 2014 and 2018 Winter Olympic uniforms by Ralph Lauren). • Informative presentation of the process from raw wool to yarn and on to fabrics and finished goods, as well as demonstrations of hand spinning and weaving.•
A delicious lunch hosted by Creative Capital Design Co-Founder and IFD’s Director Britta Cabanos and Imperial Stock Ranch Owners Dan and Jeanne Carver. • A hearty dose of question and answer discussions throughout the day. • Limited shopping available. • A spectacular end to the day will be the return trip to Portland over the Cascades past Mt. Hood and through Government Camp, back into Portland.
